Grass Fed Whey Protein
What is Grass-Fed Whey?Grass-fed whey, is whey protein that comes from naturally raised cows, free of antibiotics, pesticides, hormones and more. This is unlike other cows that are fed with unnatural diets of corn/grain and treated with hormones and other chemicals.
What Are The Benefits?
Free range, pasture raised animals are stronger, healthier and more nutritious than their grain-fed counterparts. The milk from these animals contains more immune stimulating compounds
Whey derived from cows not treated with rBGH, antibiotics and pesticides do not pass these chemicals on to you.
Grass-fed whey is rich in protein substances, called native micro fractions. These include alpha lactalbumin, beta-lactoglobulin, glycomacropeptide, immunoglobulins, serum albumin, lactoferrin, lactoperoxidase. Below are the some of the benefits:
Alpha Lactalbumin - Improves mood, memory and glucose tolerance.
Beta-Lactoglobulin - Source of BCAA's, binds with fat soluble vitamins, increasing bioavailability. Inhibited cancer cell growth in animal research.
Glycomacropeptide - Helps increase in good intestinal bacteria, antiviral, improves digestion, increased calcium absorption and enhanced immune function.
Immunoglobulins - Antibodies that act as a critical part of the immune response by binding to antigens, such as viruses or bacteria and aiding in their destruction.
Serum Albumin - Anti-oxidant and helps control blood pressure.
lactoferrin - Antioxidant, antibacterial, antifungal and antiviral properties. Stimulates bone and good digestive bacteria growth. Helps to control inflammation and allergic responses.
Lactoperoxidase - Inhibits harmful bacteria growth.
